The L5 antigenic determinant was previously suggested to be a carbohydrate epitope present on murine cell recognition molecules in the developing brain and to be an early neural marker in the chick embryo. Here, we show that L5 immunoreactivity is associated with complex-type N-glycosidic oligosaccharides. To identify the carbohydrate structure recognized(More)
Since the United Nations introduced the nonsymmetrical make-use input-output (I-O) tables in 1968, there have been ongoing discussions about ways to translate them into symmetric I-O tables. The discussions have focused on secondary products that cause the asymmetry between industries and commodities and two alternative assumptions, the industry-technology(More)
In our laboratories, for several years, two phenolic compounds have been detected during gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric analysis of urinary steroid extracts from human and animal species. Although features of the mass spectra of their trimethylsilyl (TMS) ether derivatives resembled those of oestrogens, they were atypical of steroids. The(More)

We recently reported that Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes (IRBCs) can adhere to hyaluronic acid (HA), which appears to be a receptor, in addition to chondroitin sulfate A (CSA), for parasite sequestration in the placenta. Further investigations of the nature and specificity of this interaction indicate that HA oligosaccharide fragments(More)
The comparative effect of semi-dimensional (SD) and non-dimensional (ND) normalisation on the results of a longitudinal study of gait in 5-12-year old children was investigated. The use of both height and leg length in the normalisation was examined. Only ND analysis could be used to identify subjects with the same accelerations. ND analysis of the(More)
We studied qualitative pattern of urinary acidic metabolites excreted by normal persons. The results provide a basis on which to compare results for patients with potentially abnormal organic acidurias. A series of urinary polyhydroxy (aldonic and deoxyaldonic) acids has been identified. Most of these compounds have not been previously reported in human(More)
A diversity of high-affinity oligosaccharide ligands are identified for NKR-P1, a membrane protein on natural killer (NK) cells which contains an extracellular Ca(2+)-dependent lectin domain. Interactions of such oligosaccharides on the target cell surface with NKR-P1 on the killer cell surface are crucial both for target cell recognition and for delivery(More)
